How GM Is Saves Cash with Lego

I love this out of the box idea; GM executive Dennis Pastor had issues with how he was doing business and came up with this rather simple but innovative solution

“We discussed on a Friday afternoon our frustrations with some of our reports not showing us what we really needed to see,” Pastor writes Co.Design. “We came to the conclusion that our processes were three dimensional but our reports were only two dimensional. We needed to see them 3-D; hand sketches were exchanged over the weekend and within the following week, GM had the first Lego prototype in use.”

Goes to show that there can be solutions to common problems that we haven't even considered and we don't necessarily need apps, software or huge infrastructure investments to achieve it...
